Milano Advantage Chinos®
I initially ordered three pair online - and have gone back and ordered two additional pair. The fit is definitely more slimmer (as most flat fronts are) but they provide a great look/profile and comfortable fit. I travel a great deal and they press easily, and remain looking sharp the entire day.

A great chino, for someone with a smaller build!
I loved these chinos...however, they were a bit too snug in the legs, so I had to send them back. Full disclosure, I am 5'9, 180 pounds, and have a muscular/bodybuilder build. I ordered two pairs of the 32/30s and they fit perfectly in the waist and length. However, you could see the outline of my quadriceps, and they noticeably flexed through the material when I walked. Needless to say this made the pants inappropriate for a professional environment, so I exchanged them for the Clarks.
Only slim men with a runner's/swimmer's build should order these chinos...bodybuilders stay away, even if you are slim.

Great chinos for slim physiques only
The key features of these pants include great quality material, a short rise and a relatively snug fit. Do not purchase the Milano style pants unless your body type is a slim shape. If you're a bit chunky, you should purchase the Clark style for a straight front pant. A few months ago I gained about 5-7 lbs and felt uncomforable in this style until I recently dropped the excess weight. Now the pants are my favorite again for casual wear. The front tab makes these pants look a little European however once the tab is covered by your belt, it renders the stylistic aspect of the tab moot.

BB maintain the style and quality.
There were 5 models of advantage chinos in BB. But this Milano model gave me a perfect fit. Wash and wear them right away direct from the dryer no iron required.
